Thomas Partey models new Atlético Madrid kit

Thomas Partey is one of the Atlético Madrid stars modelling their new home kit for the 2018-19 season.

Los Rojiblancos and Nike have opted to maintain their classic red and white stripes for next year’s shirt, but most notably they have dropped the thin lines that went across the club sponsor from this season’s release.

Partey has been charged with modelling the new shirt — along with teammates Alvaro Morata and Rodri — though there’s a strong chance the Ghanaian might be tempted by Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.

Their new shirt has completely ditched the black and white stripes which have helped make the Bianconeri a global brand, instead adopting a half and half style kit with a pink stripe running down the centre.

They’ll be hoping to kick on even further in their new kit next after an impressive second place finish in La Liga this season, ending the campaign eight points clear of neighbours Real Madrid and just 11 behind league champions Barcelona.
